We hear that Diamond will make a big announcement at the end of next week, as the company gears up its Radeon products and enables them to work on Intel, AMD and Nvidia chipsets in Crossfire mode.Source: The Inquirer
We're not certain how many GPUs will work in future combinations, but Intel's Bad Axe 2 motherboards with 975X chipset were the first on the market with three PEG connectors (data transfer was dependent on the combination, but you could have x8+x8+x4). This was later followed by numerous motherboards and chipsets - the 680i being the prime example.
Owners of Nforce 680i motherboards are disappointed that the 8800GT will not support three-way SLI. But if that motherboard could be fitted with three Radeon HD 3870 boards, it'd be a remarkable combination.
Judging by how VoodooDNA makes Crossfire work on an Nvidian chipset, we can take a wild shot that xDNA is a subset of technologies unified in a software package, probably a single package for simple installation.
CrossFire X compatible with AMD, Intel and NVIDIA?
